[SOLVED] Find packages that provides a specific file?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I've been unable to find anything on it:

Is it possible to find which packages provide a specific file or tool?

As an example - I'm looking for the "dig" command.

Searching the Wiki I find that it's part of the "bind" package, but searching with pacman I find nothing.
Which may say something about my pacman skills tongue but still; I'm a bit at a loss - is there a way to find which packages provide a specific uninstalled file?

I assume that several packages may provide any given file, but maybe I'm wrong?
